Vienna Festival

May-June
This six-week festival, founded in 1951, regularly attracts more than a million people to the city of Vienna, Austria. There are hundreds of performances of music, opera, ballet, and drama by some of the best-known Austrian and foreign companies in the world—including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Noh Theater of Japan, and the Malegot Ballet of St. Petersburg.
Like the Edinburgh International Festival, the Vienna Festival also includes many "fringe" events offered by independent theater, dance, and musical groups.
